Jesus answered him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God."
John 3:3

Dear Via Family,
You will NOT want to miss worshipping at Via this weekend. For years I have been saying that God is at work powerfully in our church and that stories were in the making that were not yet ready to be told. During our Hope Initiative we shared a few of them. This Sunday we will be featuring a very powerful testimony from a gentleman from Via Church that has discovered the power of the Gospel confronting his sin.

There are a few things that I would ask of you:
- Be in prayer for the services. (to tear down idols of pride, self-sufficiency, and to experience the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit, etc.)
- Be watchful for opportunities to minister to others and to point them to resources available to them (mainly directing them to the lobby display focused on Recovery Ministries).


This Weekend - Lent

This powerful weekend is tied to Lent - a season of repentance and renewal. Hopefully you have been able to purchase one of the Lent resources available from The Bookshelf in the Cafe - if not please do so. Allow this annual Christian rhythm to engage your life in the power of the Gospel. I am praying for God to do some profound work among us over the next few weeks.  For more information please click below for resources, the sermon series ahead and more.


Rummage Sale

Thank you to the many volunteers that made this year’s rummage sale the best ever. Your love for one another and your indiscriminate compassion to the many guests that came on our campus - you reflected the hope of Christ!


Merge

Mark your calendars! If you are new to Via Church, or you have been around a while and feel like you are on the outside looking in, then Merge may help you! Merge is a set of three classes (101, 201 & 301) offered on a Sunday night every other month. These 1.5 hour classes are designed to help you merge into the life of Via Church.
